Hello,
where can I find the stock app info xml file, I'd like to change a setting for my cuda card...

In Seti you get the file with the optimized apps, but where can I find it here?

thanks

You can't. Srock apps run without an app_info file: the relevant data is inserted directly into client_state.xml from the scheduler_reply.xml file sent by the project when work is issued.

app_info.xml is simply an alternative mechanism for inserting information into client_state.xml: you usually only use it when you want to tell BOINC that you don't want to use the stock app - hence the SETI/opti app case.

There is none. The stock

There is none. The stock application is a known application to both the project and BOINC. The app_info.xml file tells BOINC that you use an anonymous (platform) application, such as the optimized Seti application is. It's not downloaded from the project (stock), but needs to be put into the project directory by you.

"stock app info xml file" is

"stock app info xml file" is a contradiction in itself :-)

You either have a stock application or are running anonymous platform, which needs an app_info.xml file.

Actually, I understand Tom Philippart's position. I run the stock apps at AQUA (they optimise them themselves, there's no need to run anything different), but on a couple of machines I've tried wrapping them round with an app_info so they only run on three cores instead of four.

Tom, you can do that, but you're on your own. If you're familiar with SETI opti apps, you'll have seen the basic framework of an app_info, and you can work from that. Much of the information you'll need can be gleaned from client_state once you have the stock app running, and the rest you can read in the BOINC Wiki.
